A really interesting restoration / renovation / salvage of a damaged building. The old cathedral was damaged & architects were given the job of resurrecting it. The old parts have been kept & a modern building built within for modern day use

The shell of the original church built in 1900 is beautiful. Inside the new church the stain glass reflects on the altar at sunset. It’s a short walk from the Forks over the river to theFrench area

The beautiful ruins of this church surround a newer building that has been built inside while still using the remnants of the old walls. The surrounding park/cemetery area is very peaceful and full of the history of the church itself. The burial site of Luis...More
